RON DERMER, ISRAELI AMBASSADOR TO THE U.S.: That's publicly available information. It's kind of an important fact for your reporter to mention. And in addition to that, he may have wanted to mention a statement that was made by, not by the Israeli ambassador, not by the spokesman of the IDF but by the UN Secretary General yesterday. And I want to read you what he said yesterday. Not last year, yesterday. He said this:
"The secretary general is alarmed to hear that rockets were placed in an UNRRA school in Gaza and that subsequently these have gone missing. He expresses his outrage and regret at the placing of weapons in a UN-administered school. By doing so -- now listen, Erin, exactly what he says, -- By doing so, those responsible are turning schools into potential military targets and endangering the lives of innocent children, UN employees working in such facilities, and anyone using the UN schools as shelter.
This is yesterday.
Do you not think that it's relevant to report on CNN that the secretary general of the United Nations yesterday warned against the use of UN schools and shelter for rocket missile depots of Hamas?
ERIN BURNETT, CNN HOST: Ambassador, it is relevant, and let me ask you this then --
DERMER: Well, I've been listening for two hours of reports on CNN. I have seen split screens, horrible pictures. Horrible pictures that any decent human being would be horrified by.
I have not heard a single person say what I just said to you now, and I think that that does a disservice to your viewers to not give them the context they need to make these judgments. Hamas is placing missile batteries in schools, in hospitals, in mosques, and there must be outrage by the world and Hamas to end this.
